Titleist Vokey SM7 Raw wedges now available via WedgeWorks

Published

on

WedgeWorks customers asked and Vokey delivered: SM7 wedges are now available in a raw finish.

The tour-preferred finish is available in all 23 SM7 right-handed loft, bounce and grind combinations. On the left-handed side, the six most popular bounce and grind options are also available.

SM7 Raw wedges feature Vokey’s proprietary heat treatment for enhanced groove durability (raw wedges traditionally wear faster than finished models). This is the first time such a heat treatment has been applied to a Vokey Raw wedge.

“Raw means there is no additional finish applied to the wedge, which is made of 8620 carbon steel. It has what I like to call a satin appearance that will start to rust after some use,” says Bob Vokey.

“On tour, the Raw heads give us the flexibility to grind wedges based on a player’s needs. But guys just love the look of that raw steel – some players like it even more as it rusts, kind of like a trusty hammer or another tool. These are their scoring tools.”

For the first time SM7 Raw can be customized with any of the WedgeWorks toe engravings. This includes the traditional tour saw that appears on in-line SM7 wedges, as well as the BV Custom, BV Clover, BV Wings or BV Fleur-de-lis logos.

PGA Tour pros gaming SM7 Raw wedges include, Jordan Spieth, Justin Thomas, Adam Scott, Brian Harman, Charley Hoffman, Patrick Cantlay, Webb Simpson, and Russell Henley.

SM7 Raw wedges are available now on Vokey.com, starting at $195 (which includes 10 character stamping, custom shaft bands, and BV Wings grip).

    So $50 more gets you a raw finish, so you can grind it yourself, and if you want a specific steel shaft there is an upcharge? So we’re talking $250 befoe stamping – I like the wedge but give us a break.

    At these prices, I think more than lefties are getting “the shaft!”

Bettinardi signs Eddie Pepperell

Published

on

Eddie Pepperell is a singular quantity in to world of golf, so it’s not surprising that the Englishman has taken a unique route to becoming a Bettinardi staffer.

20 months ago, the two-time European Tour winner walked into Core Golf in Thame, Oxfordshire, and bought four putters, including a Bettinardi Studio Stock No. 8.

Pepperell, who jumped from No. 513 to No. 38 in the OWGR since putting the Bettinardi in play in April 2017, won’t have to pay for his putters any more. He joins the likes Francesco Molinari, Haotong Li, and Matt Kuchar as a Bettinardi staffer, the company announced the today.

“I’ve tried a number of putters and time and again, it’s the one model I keep coming back to.” said Eddie. “Positively I won’t have to buy a Bettinardi putter again, but having bought four putters from Core Golf I’m just hoping I haven’t put them of business as a result!” he added.

It was after Pepperell’s British Masters triumph in October that negotiations to bring him on board began in earnest.

“Once Eddie stayed ahead of a strong field at the British Masters to win his second Tour title of the year with a Bettinardi putter, we decided to reopen negotiations and we’re delighted with the outcome. It means that we now have another top 50 player in the world playing Bettinardi putters…” said Executive Vice President, Sam Bettinardi.

Here are the specs for his Studio Stock No. 8, courtesy of Bettinardi, which also provided the photos below of Pepperell’s putter (pre rust).

Material: Mild Carbon Steel
Finish: Mercury Gray PVD Finish
Face Milling: F.I.T. Face
Weight: 358 grams
Length: 33.25”
Lie: 71 degrees
Loft: 3 degrees
